★ Beginner Class Riders:
Beginner is defined as a rider that has NOT competed in any form of motorcycle racing prior to January 1, 2017.
Beginner classes are for new riders to try racing to see if they like it. It isn’t a place to plan on winning a series championship. When a rider moves up a bike size, they CANNOT DROP BACK to a beginner class.
Beginner riders may race another class, BUT if they place in the TOP 30% they will be moved out of the beginner class. (Top 30% based on 8 rider class minimum.)
Swan MX Raceway Park reserves the right to place riders according to speed & ability. Riders will be advanced at our discretion and may be advanced throughout the year out of the beginner class, if necessary. Series points will not transfer from class to class.
Three 1st place finishes = rider will be advanced
Four 2nd place finishes = rider will be advanced
Or a combination of a total of four 1st & 2nd place finishes.
*Subject to class entry minimums at the discretion of Swan MX Raceway Park
★ Sandbagging: If it is determined that a rider is sandbagging, they will be immediately advanced.
★ Series Tie Breaker: If a tie is recorded in the final point standings, the tie breaker will be the best finish in the last event that either or both riders attended in that series.
